No wonder it seemed like there wasn't much metal, the other chunks were too big to fit through the drain hole!!

The flat crests on the two biggest chunks are different widths and I beleive they are helixed opposite directions, so that means they are off different gears.. the largest chunk is clearly from the front diff ring gear..

I noticed the clearance between the drain plug magnet and the ring gear is very small, so I think a peice of metal got stuck to the magnet, then when I took the right hand corner, it flopped over and got wedged between trans case and ring gear and theres the pop sound I heard.
